Underwhelmed again at Scarpetta

syoung | Jun 26, 2011 10:05 PM

Being foodies who regularly go to Manhattan to dine, we went to Scarpetta Toronto last year and it was decent but not spectacular by any stretch and certainly well below par at these prices by Manhattan standards. We went again this weekend for a bday dinner and again (except for the polenta), ho hum, not bad, but probably won't go again at least for another year, many never.

It's disappointing that Conant seems to put his Toronto restaurant sub-par to his same in NYC. I hope David Chang's Momofuku doesn't suffer the same drop in excellence when his restaurant opens here.
